RO is a brand run by some college mates of mine. They normally make very technical-type bags, sort of an American Porter look but they went all out and made something a lot more classic and in leather for our collaboration. It's still in prototype phase, we are trying to improve on it so we can have a good product ready for December. They do a chunk of business in the USA. Korea, Japan and HK are large markets for them as well. Barneys Japan loves them. [ http://www.robags.com/ ]

Also concur that a motif tie (or better yet ps) with that logo would be pretty cool. A PS would be a reasonably easy commission too, I should think.

We love the logo, too and are currently working with Drakes to have it woven instead of printed. It's like you folks can predict the future.

The store sounds fantastic. Any plans to evangelize Mr. Hills' fanciful tweeds in the East? From what I understand he's always on the lookout for new opportunities, and has some RTW going now.

Guy Hills and I are very good friends, I've been a supporter of Dashing Tweeds since its inception. There are a few pictures of me in his blog. Unfortunately, it's a tough sell in Hong Kong. It's just so hot

Sharp eyes! You're the second person to notice that. We just left it in as a little joke, didn't think anyone would pick it up but we were wrong!
